I got a new tfb88pub last week. I used it for the first time tonight. I watched a video that said I needed to season it and did so. Then a friend of mine told me to use aluminum foil on pan under rack. I set my temp on 375 and the steaks took forever to cook to a temp of 125 in center. Am I doing something wrong? Does the foul mess with it?

How long is forever? I have a new Pro 575 and the temp setting is way off. Like 20* colder than what it's set at. They're supposedly working with me to try and remedy it but they're not setting any speed records. Check your grill temp with a reliable thermometer and see where you're at.

I would say 40 minutes or so. I opened several times to check temps though. I wonder if the foil could have hurt me

The foil just protects the drip tray and keeps you from having to scrape the burnt drippings off. 1 sheet of foil should not affect your temps enough to notice.

When I do steaks, I smoke them at 225 for an hour, then I pull them and crank the T as high as it will go. When it gets up to 450 I return the steaks to the grate with temp probes inserted, and I pull them at 125 and rest for 10 minutes foil wrapped. Perfect medium/medium rare every time. And the FLAVOR!

I appreciate it. That helps me a lot. New at this
